The Department of History is inviting applications for 2 three-year bursaries, open to incoming students, tenable from 24 September 2012. Bursaries will be initially offered for one year and will be renewed annually, subject to satisfactory progress reports.
Deadline for applications: 5pm, Tuesday 8 May 2012
The department will waive the full-time Home/EU tuition fees otherwise payable by the student. This award is open to applications from incoming students who have been awarded a full-time place on the MPhil/PhD programme in the History department commencing in September 2012.
We also welcome applications from international students – however, the award will not exceed the home/EU fee per annum. In this instance, the bursaries will comprise fee-discount awards rather than full fee waivers.
Bursaries will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence. Consideration will also be given to allocation of awards across the spectrum of subjects studied within the department. For more details on the existing expertise in the department, see: http://www.gold.ac.uk/history/staff/
The award cannot be held in combination with an award from a Research council or similar body.
The deadline for applications is 5pm Tuesday 8 May 2012. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interviews on Wednesday 6 June.
In order to apply you should fill out and e-mail the PhD bursary application form to Ms Kerstin Feurle, the History Department Postgraduate Coordinator, at k.feurle (@gold.ac.uk). Please mark your e-mail with the subject heading BURSARY APPLICATION.
NB You must have first been awarded a place on MPhil/PhD programme in History before applying for a bursary.
